    Hello!
    The water is currently a light green tint and it's a tad cloudy.

    Have you read Pool School? Do you have a plan of attack?

    The high CH can be managed by controlling the pH and TA.

    But, first you have to clear your water.
    Raise your CYA up to 30-40ppm, verify/adjust your pH to about 7.2, and then start the Shock Process described in Pool School.
